Postgraduate open events

The perfect opportunity to hear first-hand from our lecturers about our taught master's degrees, professional courses and research opportunities.

Your open event

We understand that you are busy with life (work, study, family or other commitments) so rather than running open days we run short, informal - yet highly informative – open events that last no more than 2 hours. You'll get to discover more about the course you're considering, find out about funding and finance options and take an optional tour of our facilities.

Whether you're 21 or 71, widening your skills base or furthering your knowledge to boost your career prospects, our postgraduate open events are the best way for you to investigate our range of courses and flexible modes of study. Parking is free on campus for open events and complimentary refreshments will be available on your arrival.

In light of the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic it is possible that these events may be run as virtual open days. Please do ‘book your place’ below and we will keep you updated closer to the time.
